5 Matching questions

  1. anemometer
  2. warm front
  3. high
  4. isobar
  5. Mercury Barometer
  1. a moving weather front along which a warm air mass slides over a cold air mass, producing stratiform clouds and precipitation
  2. b a line on a weather map that joins points having the same barometric pressure
  3. c An instrument that measures changes in air pressure, consisting of a glass tube partially filled with mercury, with its open end resting in a dish of mercury. Air pressure pushing on the mercury in the dish forces the mercury in the tube to be higher.
  4. d an area in which the barometric pressure is greater than that of the surrounding air
  5. e an instrument that measures wind speed

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. an area in which the barometric pressure is lower than that of the surrounding air
  2. an instrument used to determine the direction that the wind is blowing
  3. a front where a warm air mass is caught between two colder air masses and brings cool temperatures and large amounts of rain and snow
  4. the resistance encountered when one body is moved in contact with another. Slows down the speed of wind when it flows over land
  5. a boundary between two air masses of different density, moisture, or temperature

5 True/False questions

  1. pressure gradient forceAn instrument that measures changes in air pressure, consisting of a glass tube partially filled with mercury, with its open end resting in a dish of mercury. Air pressure pushing on the mercury in the dish forces the mercury in the tube to be higher.

          

  2. HighArea of high pressure where wind will move away from, associated with dry and nice weather and air that is sinking

          

  3. aneroid barometerAn instrument that measures changes in air pressure, consisting of a glass tube partially filled with mercury, with its open end resting in a dish of mercury. Air pressure pushing on the mercury in the dish forces the mercury in the tube to be higher.

          

  4. air pressurea body of air that has about the same temperature and moisture throughout

          

  5. Cold Frontmoving weather front along which a warm air mass slides over a cold air mass, producing stratiform clouds and precipitation
